It reliably informed me - with PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE, no less(!) that if I was to be slightly fabulous this season, I'd really need a cape.
Cue BurdaStyle Magazine, August 2012, with a cute and easy cape pattern - well I never!
Here's the result - it's already had
|Yes, those really are the cat's whiskers :)|
It's made from a beautifully soft and cosy bonded wool, which is a camel colour on the reverse (there were lots of thinking hours, trying to work out how it could possibly be reversible! But sadly, interfacing was required to avoid it looking like a sack of a cardigan, so grey it was.)
The buttons are cute and are Italian Designer imports - which are embossed with a logo that looks remarkably like the Fendi one.
It's fully lined and my only disappointment is that after finishing it I found some faux leather bias that would have livened up the armholes - ah well!
It's basic but warm, cute and easy to throw on over skinnies or wool shorts - so I'm happy :)
Oh - apologies for the odd photo angle! My tripod was having a time holding my camera whilst attached only to my cast iron bed stand.
